I will be attending the Jazz Composers Orchestra Institute from August 7-11, It will be a wonderful opportunity to develop resources to assist me in the application of my personal compositional skills to the Symphony Orchestra. There will be seminars by mentor composers, George Lewis, Anthony Davis, Anne LeBaron, Paul Chihara, Nicole Mitchell, James Newton, Alvin Singleton, and Derek Bermel……..Should be an enlightening week.
